2021 Sun & Sea Festival Transforms into Sandcastle City August 14-22. See the biggest Sandcastle ever on Imperial Beach’s sand or watch the Kids-n-Kastles contest.
Summertime and sandcastles are an Imperial Beach tradition. For one year only, the Sun & Sea Festival Committee will honor Imperial Beach’s love of sandcastles as Sandcastle City August 13-22, 2021. San Diego County’s largest sandcastle competition will be replaced by the largest sandcastle ever built on Imperial Beach sand. This massive sandcastle will be built at Portwood Pier Plaza by the multi-award-winning professional team and hometown favorite, I.B. Posse.
Visitors to Imperial Beach can watch the sandcastle transform from a mountain of sand into a vibrant, living work of art starting Friday morning on August 13. Building will take place over several days and is anticipated to be complete by August 20. The castle will be available for viewing after completion will not be destroyed by locals as in past tradition.
This event is Funded by the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Grant Program.
